From info card:
"Idi was a high official of the Sixth Dynasty, possibly identical with a vizier of the same name buried at Abydos. The animation of his face's large features and the minimal modeling of his body are elements of a style that originated late in the Fifth Dynasty at Saqqara and spread during the Sixth Dynasty to the provinces."
